Yadav is serving time in Ranchi jail since December 2017 after being convicted in the fodder scam by a special CBI court under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act.
The RJD chief has been convicted in over Rs 900-crore fodder scam cases which pertains to fraudulent withdrawal of money from Deoghar, Dumka and two Chaibasa treasuries of various districts of undivided Bihar in the 1990s.
Lalu Prasad Yadav had earlier written to AIIMS director Randeep Guleria, requesting him not to move him back to Ranchi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) under “pressure” from any political party or investigating agency, as he was “still unwell”.
Fodder scam case: Lalu Prasad was on Tuesday convicted by the special CBI court in Raipur in connection with the fourth fodder scam case that pertains to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 3.5 crore from the Dumka treasury by Animal Husbandry Department officials between 1991 and 1996.
Fodder scam: Lalu yadav was found guilty in the fourth case pertaining to alleged withdrawal of Rs 3.5 crore from the Dumka treasury (which is now in Jharkhand) over two decades ago. The order on quantum of punishment will be passed following arguments on March 21, 22 and 23.
Lalu Prasad Yadav was sentenced to three and a half years in prison by a special CBI court on January 6 in a case related to the Rs 950 crore fodder scam of the 1990s. He had appealed for bail a week after his conviction.
Ever since the Grand Alliance, comprising the RJD, JD(U) and Congress, got dismantled, the RJD has gone on the offensive against Bihar CM Nitish Kumar. The attacks got sharpened after Prasad was sentenced to jail in the two fodder scam cases.
